Photoshoot with the “mustache model” and create a 12ft canvas
After showing me a few examples of the kind of photo and canvas that they wanted to pull-off, the owners and I set an appointment with the mustache model. For now, his identity will remain a secret ^.- We met up at the ‘Stache House while it was still in construction. I used my EFS 15-85mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM to capture the image. From there, we needed to make this big, 12 feet big! So I used a combination of Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop to edit and size to the canvas. We sent it off to a printer who got it down on canvas. The project is really cool! As you walk in, you notice it…I mean, it’s 12 feet long and just north of 4 feet tall. It’s neat to see people take photos with your work displayed in the background, and yet adding to the well orchestrated environment.[hr type=”single” margin_top=”30″ margin_bottom=”30″]
Background on the overall effort
When I was approached by the owners of ‘Stache House to help them with their initial branding efforts I was very excited. I had been in the world of Web Development for a while, so it was a refreshing change to venture back into graphic and print design. The various projects that I worked on with the owners of the ‘Stache House was hugely rewarding! It’s a fantastic feeling to walk into a place and see your work.
